Gilbert unveil match ball for British & Irish Lions series in Australia

I feel I need to add a comment here so people can go "really? it was just five but now its 6 comments on a post about a ball, just 99 days before the competition itself starts. Maybe this is actually an interesting stream of comments and a better than usual video."

Midweek Madness - Rob Cook's bizarre goal kicking technique


Don't think telling ppl to shut up is apt really - comments have been fairly sympathetic I'd say.

@rob His style is idiosyncratic, for sure, but every now and then someone with a unique affectation or emphasis happens upon something that actually work .Obvious example is (not so much Wilko) as the changeover from forward to backwards in high jump. That was counter-intuitive until science spent some time looking and found it to be completely sensible and of course scientific.

Still, I don't know enough about the ergo-dynamics (?) of the whole thing to say much more....

England upset the All Blacks with famous win at Twickenham

true Pretzel, I'm prejudging and preempting...

courting eh? haven't heard that word in a while. A bit like wooing (is that even how you spell wooing?!?) ...who's wooing who(m) in this clip? Not sure....

And hey, didn't Michael Jackson say (something like) love isn't black and white he wasn't all 'Bad' was he.....there's ...shades...of... grey.... *gets coat, leaves promptly*

England upset the All Blacks with famous win at Twickenham

@bumptruck (and in general)

check out the perfect, subtle cheating at 1.02: NZ #13 ENG #10 strolling along, hand in hand, but only one player is benefiting....

Well done to England, they dominated and really had NZ rattled by the middle of the second half - no mean feat. Somehow, I think that if there was a series of NZ ENG games, the next one might result in a slaughtering of ENG, but we'll never know. Good for rugby thou, this result. Shakes things up a bit.

Some lot of talk of SBW in NZ press, and what he might have done, but I'm not sure if anything would have helped this weekend.

Brian O'Driscoll try in the corner sets up Leinster win over Munster

Re Down South: Would be nice to see in some ways (in fact, it would be great to see more players going down south for a while to sharpen up), and while it might have made sense in the past, the tax situation in Ireland might really mitigate against it. BOD would loose an awful lot of money if he didn't finish his playing career in Ireland (and Rugby players don't get soccer players wages)

I hate talking about the Lions so far out (it feels a bit teenagery) but I can see him travelling, and possibly being called up from reserve to full team if needed)
